Screensavers were sort of a mandatory thing back in days when CRT monitors ruled the computer world. However, with the arrival of the more advanced, LCD screens, that didn’t need this protective function, everything changed, and screensavers became the relict of the past.
Nevertheless, there are still people that like them very much and appreciate their artistic vibe and would like to see them on their screen, but don’t know if that option is even available in Windows anymore.
Well, guess what? It is, and you only need to make a couple of changes to your Windows 10 settings and voila! You can enjoy a retro feeling on your brand new PC.
How to Enable Screensaver on Windows 10
Enabling a screensaver on your Windows 10 is no complicated task and consists of the following:
- First, you need to type “Settings” in the Search box
and when it appears in the results, click on it.
- When a new window opens, go to “Personalization”
and then select “Lock screen”.
- Scroll down to “Screen saver settings”, enter them,
and choose the screensaver that you want in the drop-down menu below “Screen saver”.
- Set the timer (number of minutes of inactivity before the screensaver turns on), select whether you want to display the logon screen on a resume, and click “Apply”.
- After that, press “OK”
and that is it. Your screensaver is now active.
